My research and teaching are focused on supporting students, school leaders and policy-makers to improve education through research- and evidence-informed policy and practice. My research has a particular focus on quantitative methods and secondary data analysis, educational evaluation and improvement, research synthesis and review, and knowledge transfer.
Topics which I have examined in-depth through my work include school value-added (‘Progress’) measures, teacher evaluation, professional development and learning programmes, and school effects on wider (‘non-cognitive’) outcomes. My work on school accountability has led to several high-impact papers (see below), an interview on BBC Radio 4, and has been cited widely and internationally including by UNESCO, the Young Lives International Study, FFT Education Datalab and featured in national news media.
